The Buzz Moves

17 Oct 2009

Birds tweet, a dog barks, a couple argue bitterly. Bloxwich children rise slowly to breakfast, like Bela Lugosi. Hidden sun. The buzz moves.

19 Oct 2009

Ice-cold in Bloxwich. Leaves spiral on an unswept pave. Kids shiver in school shirts. Blue sky hints, weather computer says NO. The buzz moves.

20 Oct 2009

Mighty tree, incandescent red & green, waves & whispers in wind. Contrail challenges cloud, clawing at sky. Birds fly south. The buzz moves.

21 Oct 2009

The gas men cometh. Hard-workers in holes like moles. Gardens await their Fountain with bated breath. Schools waken. The buzz moves.

22 Oct 2009

Idiots in 4WD's bludgeon their way to school, blocking road and path. Postmen lie sleeping. Politicians wash dirty hands. The buzz moves.

23 Oct 2009

Sun-scalpel lances glowering gloom. Youngsters stride out, knowledge-seekers. Coffee-addicts converse. Leamore lives! The buzz moves.

24 Oct 2009

Cloud lays over land, wet-blanket party-pooper. Wrong kind of leaves cover rails. Birds splutter damply, snails cheer softly. The buzz moves.

25 Oct 2009

Clocks made liars herald Pooh's blustery day, green-gold & blinding blue. Bacon sizzles. One steps beyond. The buzz moves.

26 Oct 2009  

In Walsall Bus Station you hear the sound, of effin' and blindin' it's all around. With spittin' an litterin', an' smokin' potthe concrete UFO's a quite dubious spot. Good job the 61's arrived and I'm on my way to Lichfield, 'innit? The buzz moves.

27 Oct 2009

Raindrops on rowan-tree hang, a universe in reflection. Seagull climbs. Yellow cyclist blurs. Red-light glaring halts time. The buzz moves.

28 Oct 2009

Long shadows outlined in flame. Haze mists o'er all. Tree-skeleton waves arms at sky. All Hallows is nigh. The buzz moves.

29 Oct 2009

Vicar's home beneath a canopy of gold. Firemen sleep like Arthur, ready for the call. Drivers queue to warm the globe. The buzz moves.

30 Oct 2009

Pensioners gather, gaggling goose-like on buses. Shoppers throng as busy ants. Dogs, joyful, celebrate spring in autumn. The buzz moves.

2 Nov 2009

South-sun blinds in blue beyond. Ice-shimmers air, slicing breeze. Albion's banner flies from topless towers, Arthur waking. The buzz moves.

3 Nov 2009

Youngsters swarm, ladybird-like in uniform. Rain-soaked streets mirror sheepish motorists. A village stirs. The buzz moves.

4 Nov 2009

Drivers yawn, sun-blinded, phone in hand. The iron river flows to towers of tedium. Air chokes, carbonized. The buzz moves.

5 Nov 2009

Bright brollies bob, a mushroom forest. Heads down and hurrying, workers make their way. The rain scythes. The buzz moves.

6 Nov 2009

Smoke sours air, Fawkesian legacy. Government reminded, fears vivification of V. Remember, remember... The buzz moves.

7 Nov 2009  

Leaves falling herald sleep. Poppies rise and women weep. Steel-eyed veterans answer call. Serve them too, we must not fail. The buzz moves.

9 Nov 2009

Fog o'er all, ice-blanket pierced by watery sun's-eye. Scurrying humanity below, like bugs beneath a duvet. The buzz moves.

11 Nov 2009

11th hour, 11th day. Two minutes of peace. The rest is war, and tears. The Earth stands still. The buzz moves, silent.

12 Nov 2009

Kids march, hopeful. What future? Industry destroyed. Global warming. Overpopulation. War. Time for change. The buzz moves.
